5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive, no problems

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Boots fast, programs start up fast, games have minimal load screens. Copy software allowed me to set this up as my boot drive with no hassle.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I happily await solid state drives becoming affordable enough that I can replace all of my old disk drives with them. I used to think they were just a nice convenience, but the performance differences I've noticed since putting this in my machine have me sold.

Pros: got this a while back to replace the 250gb mechanical drive that was in my computer took me from a 10-12 boot time to seemingly instant programs open on command and after a few hours of heavy use this things performance doesnt seem to be affected at all where as other ssd ive use have a noticeable drop in performance worst ive seen is the solid state in my laptop that after a few hours of use can barely open the file explorer i plan on replacing my laptops ssd with one of these eventually

Cons: none what so even

Other Thoughts: every one i know looking to get a ssd i recomend a vertex 460 just cant beat these things ya ask me

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: It works good when it works

Cons: Drive locks up. How does a SSD lock up? Sometimes 2 times a day other times once a week. Death, taxes and this drive will lock up. You must power cycle the computer to clear the lock. Can't find any software updates on website.

Other Thoughts: This is my 4th SSD no problems with any of the others. Going back to the Samsung EVO and toss this one.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Christopher P.,

We will gladly help you with this issue! Crashes and freezes are usually related to system instability, most likely related to system memory. Though less likely, it is also possible the drive has developed an issue. Our Technical Support can help you make that determination. If we cannot quickly correct the issue we will gladly make arrangements to have the drive tested and replaced in accordance with the OCZ Storage Solutions Limited Warranty. It is important to us that you have a great experience with the Vertex 460 and we will work to make that a reality.

Kind Regards,

2 out of 5 eggsStalls on Windows 7 Startup

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Is pretty fast. If it boots, it run ok.

Cons: Had this installed with Windows 7 32 bit as a secondary drive in a dual boot operation. Only booted to this drive about once a week. About 75 % of the time, the drive stalled at the Windows boot screen. If I rebooted the drive a second time, it would load properly. It was as if the drive had gone to sleep and would not wake up on the first boot. Used Acronis to clone a Plextor ssd and it works fine, so it is not the OS.

5 out of 5 eggsWhats not to like?

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Failed to see that OCZ bundled a version of Acronis with this drive when I bought it. Surprise! Made my transfer of Windows 8.1 on a 500gb drive to the 240gb drive easy!
(as a side note, the recovery partition from the 500gb drive still booted and worked after the whole transfer)

Cons: I did not buy two?!

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Faster than 7200 RPM HDD

Cons: Slower then another SSD drive I have.

Other Thoughts: My Dell Latitude E620 comes with a Samsung 128 GB SSD that scores 206.2 MB/sec for Average transfer rate using HD Tune 2.55.

This SSD is inside my Gaming laptop Asus G73JH and scores 150.8 MB/sec.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Mario M.,

Thank you very much for purchasing the Vertex 460; it is a wonderful SSD that will serve you well for a long time! Thank you also for sharing additional feedback. Piecing together information from your original feedback on December 2, 2014 with this new information, I am able to explain the WEI score of 7.7 and the Hard Disk Tune 2.55 performance. The ASUS G73JH notebook is based on the Intel HM55 chipset, which has an older SATA 3Gb/s controller. Even though the drive is a SATA 6Gb/s device, it will be bandwidth limited by the SATA 3Gb/s controller of the HM55 chipset. WEI will measure accordingly and cap the overall score. Regarding the scores you observed with HD Tune 2.55: while some newer versions of HD Tune have offered some SSD support, older versions are not recommended for SSD testing. We recommend testing with ATTO, Crystal Disk Mark, or IOMeter 2010. With any of those you should see maximum sequential performance ranging from 200-250MB/s on the HM55 mobile chipset.

I am more than happy to elaborate or answer any additional questions you may have. You can contact me anytime using the email address listed on my original feedback response!

Best Regards,

Robert

5 out of 5 eggsFast!

This review is from: OCZ VTX460-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Flash Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Epic Black Friday sale price!!! Clone from a full 120GB SSD drive to this drive took 15 minutes. (Ubuntu Live system using dd command, then EASEUS Partition Manager for partition resizing after reboot.)
Came with a 5.25" bracket and screws.

Cons: None. Hopefully it will stay that way. Umm, does not come with SATA cable (but that is noted in the description.)

Other Thoughts: It was tough to choose between this 240GB and a 480GB which had very similar $ per GB cost. I went with this as it was sub $100 and the other was $200 (I had already spent enough on other things). And 240GB is enough for an Operating System and various programs that must be installed on the C: drive.
